Timberlake, 'N Sync take over Video Music Awards
NEW YORK (AP) - Suddenly, the MTV Video Music Awards are all about Justin Timberlake.
Timberlake took over the awards Sunday night, wrestling the spotlight away from a rehabilitated Lady Gaga, an X-rated Miley Cyrus and a vengeful Taylor Swift with a medley of hits and the rumoured reunion with former boy band mates 'N Sync.
Timberlake - the night's top nominee with early leader Macklemore & Ryan Lewis - also was given the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award by Jimmy Fallon.
"I don't deserve the award, but I'm not going to give it back," Timberlake said. "I'm taking this home." Timberlake, dressed in a black suit and black hat with a red feather, powered through a breathless series of solo hits before the other four members of 'N Sync - JC Chasez, Chris Kirkpatrick, Joey Fatone, and Lance Bass - joined him on stage, opening with Bye Bye Bye.
